In the first article of this series we started post-processing a night sky photo in Adobe® Lightroom. As I mentioned, I would have been satisfied with the results from that blog post up until today, if I hadn’t read an article in Outdoor Photographer, The Milky Way Dilemma by Glenn Randall, from December 2017. So in this part of the series we are going to continue the post-processing. I will first show you what results are possible within Adobe® Lightroom. Since I wasn’t satisfied with those, I will then show you how to improve these with Adobe® Photoshop.
In the following article series, I am going to show how to post-process astrophotographs. The preparations to open the file in Adobe® Lightroom are the same as described in How To create a Monochrome Image. This article will guide you through the basic steps of post-processing in
Adobe® Lightroom. The second article will continue with the specific adjustments for astrophotography.
